Sky Without Stars

By: Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell

This book is being described as Les Mis meets the Lunar Chronicles so naturally I had to read this immediately! When there was a chance to do a Fantastic Flying Book Club tour I jumped at the opportunity. Many thanks to them and the publisher for providing the arc.

Daisy Jones & The Six

By: Taylor Jenkins Reid

70’s era drugs, sex and rock & roll by the author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo… yeah, this was a a little high on my most anticipated reads list this year. Even the subject matter appeals to me so it hurts to admit…

It fell a little flat.

Things Not Conducive to Blogging

Probably the main thing not conducive to blogging or keeping up right now is abdominal  surgery and a stomach full of stitches. I told myself I wasn’t going to bother with posting or even scheduling posts but I had really been hoping to keep up with reading and commenting and that just didn’t happen.

So you’re going to live with grandma for a little while in a town you’ve never seen. You know it only because your Aunt disappeared from there and was never seen again. Or how about the body of a high schooler found at the murder theme park?

Superhero Questions & Aqua-thoughts that Have Been Bugging Me

Mera in Aquaman

So after seeing Captain Marvel, rewatching Aquaman and generally having insomnia right now I made a list of some of the superhero movie thoughts and questions that have been bugging me. Not just why doesn’t Mera take control of Atlantis cause she’s certainly powerful and smarter than Orm…

After what feels like forever a new and longer Good Omens trailer dropped and we got a look at some characters in action. And naturally when I saw War (Mireille Enos) the first thing I thought was… oh do I like the hair. I mean if you’re going to be one of the Horseman of the Apocalypse you should definitely have a good look to you!

Space is too Big & Cool for Earth Style Bullshit…

Honor Bound

Honor Bound

By: Ann Aguirre and Rachel Caine

So after the first book Honor Among Thieves once the MC Zara bonds with the Leviathan ship I couldn’t help think there were certain elements that where described as near sexual. Not to mention Zara’s growing attraction to her ship mate Bea.

And yeah, she starts thinking threesome with the ship here. Which naturally made the super mature me go, “I knew it!”

But also where would alien space ship fall under sexuality? I suppose that’s definitely in the old “other” category on the old book chart I’m keeping this year.

Fighting with My Family

Fighting with My Family

Directed By: Stephan Merchant

I must admit going into Fighting with My Family I never understood the pull of wrestling and apart from a period of time in high school when my family was into it never paid much attention wrestling.

But hey I hadn’t been to the cinema since Glass so I gave it a go.

On Tuesday, actually sometime Monday night I suppose, I’m going to own Aquaman. Then I will be able to study it in all its glory. Essays. Dissertations. Or I’ll probably just endlessly watch it. Also Tuesday Taylor Jenkins Reid’s new book Daisy Jones and the Six will be released and I am ready!

So all in all it should be a good entertainment week. And Captain Marvel!
